  [0047] FIG. 8 illustrates various user connections 800 at a first social networking site according to one embodiment of the invention. Specifically, the network 800 includes a large number of users, users B to E, and a central user, user A, is associated with these users. In some embodiments, user A is fixed to central node 805, users B to E are fixed to nodes 810, 815, 820, and 825, respectively, and each node is connected to node 805. is there. In addition, each node 805-825 is provided with identification labels 835, 840, and 845, respectively, a first social networking site, a second social networking site, and a third social networking site. Represents a site. Each identification label identifies the social networking site (s) associated with each node.

  [0048] For example, in some embodiments, node 805 may be associated with a first social networking site. Accordingly, node 805 includes an identification label 835. Similarly, node 810 is also associated with the first social networking site, and therefore node 810 also includes an identification label 835. The information relationship AB between node 805 and node 810 is between two users involved in the first social networking site. The information relationship includes information presented to a first user (such as user A) that has a relationship with a second user (such as user B). In some embodiments, the information relationship about AB is defined as information from user B presented to user A.

  [0049] In contrast to nodes 805 and 810, node 815 is associated with a second social networking site. Therefore, node 815 includes an identification label 840. Thus, the information relationship A-C between nodes 805 and 815 is between two users at two separate social networking sites.

  [0050] In order to present information from user C to user A, user A must be authenticated by a second social network site with which user C is involved. Authentication may be required, for example, when user C restricts access to his information to only a certain number and / or type of person (eg, his friends, or a particular geography, among other examples). From the target area, or who graduated from a specific school). In an alternative embodiment, if a first user, such as user C, does not restrict access to his information, a second social user can request a second social user when requesting information about the first user. You may not require to be authenticated by a networking site.
